Melbourne train operators Metro cancel more than dozen services

melbourne-newtrainMelbourne's new train operator has cancelled more than a dozen services in its first morning in the job.

Hong Kong-based consortium Metro Trains Melbourne took over the troubled network from French-owned Connex Trains and Yarra Trams has been taken over by French-owned Keolis (KDR) at 3.01am.

Metro's chief executive Andrew Lezala admitted it was not a great start.

"We've had too many cancellations this morning," he said.

They are liability faults with rolling stock, so clearly we ve got a lot of work to do to address those and put some long-term fixes in place.
